The Devils are 7-3 in their last 10 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Capitals are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 7-1 in their last 8 overall. The under is 6-1 in Devils last 7 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Capitals last 4 overall. The Devils are 3-13 in the last 16 meetings in Washington and 5-22 in the last 27 meetings. The favorite is 46-17 in the last 63 meetings.

The New Jersey Devils provide some betting value in their current form, as they're coming off their best week of the season and they're currently the most profitable team on the road. With that said, the Washington Capitals are the hottest team in the league and remain the most profitable team in the sport overall this season. The Capitals have also won all four meetings against the Devils this season, and they've dominated them over the years as well. The plus money is appealing a bit, but I'll take the Caps at home and the PL for max betting value.
